Toshiba reveals unbelievably thin, back-chatting TVs at IFA 2018


If you can get your hands on a new Toshiba TV you might soon be able to talk to it using Alexa, as announced by the company at Berlin’s IFA conference today.

At IFA 2018 Toshiba announced that, starting in 2019, the majority of Toshiba OLED, 4K HDR, and Full HD smart ranges will have Amazon’s voice assistant built in, giving users access to a variety of voice features.

Instead of relying on a voice-activated remote control or the Amazon Echo, the new TVs will have an inbuilt far-field microphone, meaning you can ask your TV directly to turn the volume up, change the channel, or switch inputs.
